Com­pas­sion Build­ing locks up res­i­dents to pur­chase tur­keys

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL -

Tara and Ry­dell Palmer of the Com­pas­sion Build­ing re­ported that after a suc­cess­ful year of lock­ing up lo­cal res­i­dents for char­ity, the or­ga­ni­za­tion raised enough money to pur­chase 25 tur­keys for Thanks­giv­ing.

The Con­gres­sional Ho­li­ness Church on West Av­enue and Fur­nace Street are still look­ing for help with do­na­tions of food and vol­un­teers to help feed the hun­gry on Thurs­day for their an­nual Thanks­giv­ing pro­gram.

The Palmer’s are ask­ing for do­na­tions of to-go boxes, in­stant pota­toes, stuff­ing, salt, pep­per, but­ter, turkey pans, tin pans for vegetables, and of course more tur­keys.

For more in­for­ma­tion on how to help the church pro­vide a Thanks­giv­ing meal for those in need, con­tact ei­ther Tara or Ry­dell Palmer at
